czech studio boa design has created a set of table and pendant ‘reed’ lamps that draw influence from the simple shape of the water-bound plants. a colored textile cable runs through thin glass rods ‘stems’ of each lamp, which is then hung or run through a small glass base for table use. the bulb is located in the head of the shape, made of borosilicate glass. ‘reed’ lamp is produced in either sandblasted or textured glass, and can be placed separately or in small groups.
